Afghan Helicopter Photo
Date: Thu, 27 Dec 2007 20:21:36 -0600If you don't think our military pilots earn their pay ... you need to take a look at this picture ... and then look again and realize what you're seeing This photo was taken by a soldier in Afghanistan of a helo rescue mission. The pilot is a PA Guard guy who flies EMS choppers in civilian life. Now how many people on the planet you reckon could set the ass end of a chopper down on the roof top of a shack on a steep mountain cliff and hold it there while soldiers load wounded men in the rear??? If this does not impress you ... nothing ever will. Gives me the chills and a serious case of the vertigo .. I can't even imagine having the nerve ... much less the talent and ability .. God Bless our military!!!!!
